Green Flash


These little tubes, jars and bottles of bright colors make such fun subjects to paint. We gals can end up with quite a wild and zany stock pile of purchases made on a whim. I love this iridescent green nail polish - but somehow it just doesn't look so appealing on my nails. Glad I never threw it out - somewhere along the line I knew I'd find the perfect use for it.

Thanks for the kind comments guys and gals! Makeup is such fun to paint - altho admitedly most of my collection revolves around something in the red/orange/pink family. However those little nail polishes come in such wacky hues that they can provide just the right hit of color to liven up a painting.

Love what you're doing!

Thanks suzanne! can't wait to get into the studio today and paint again - just a few days "off" makes me feel rusty - but I already have another little makeup setup that I can't wait to do... life sure does get in the way of pianting sometimes, doesn't it??
